Red Stars Over Hollywood
In the mid 1940's Myron Fagan launched a one-man crusade against what he claimed was a "Red Conspiracy in Hollywood." Out of this crusade would come the Cinema Educational Guild. The culmination of this crusade would be the 1947 congressional hearings where more than 300 famous stars, writers, and directors from Hollywood, Radio, and TV were investigated, many of whom were blacklisted as Communists. These hearings resulted in the imprisonment of the Hollywood Ten.
